Hollywood Has No Love For "He-Man?"


Posted October 17, 2008 - By Joseph Baxter

Surely the result of a devious plot concocted by the evil Skeletor (or to a lesser extent, the horrible Hordak,) it seems that negotiations have soured on a possible updated feature film for Masters of the Universe.

Apparently the younger executives over at Silver Pictures who carried rosy childhood memories of He-Man and originally championed the project are GONE, leaving mean He-Man haters in their place. And after the project was passed by some A-list directors like Doug Liman and Bryan Singer, the project was left in a bad kind of limbo.

It's actually kind of baffling. We had a revival of Transformers and GI Joe is on the way. It doesn't seem rational that the third (and perhaps biggest) of the big three 80's kids (boys) staples would get rejected like this. Are we to be simply left with memories of the thespian-like performance of Dolph Lundgren? Come on!

Especially angry is the Mattel Toy Company who stood to make a killing in the reboot of their most successful toy franchise from the 80's. With revived "retro" versions of Transformers and GI Joe (in identical original packages) in toy aisles today, Hasbro just saw a HUGE opportunity go by.
